Just fixed a kitchen drain stoppage. My dishwasher drain

Customer Question

Just fixed a kitchen drain stoppage. My dishwasher drain pump keeps running dispite having no water in the sump. This keeps my cleaning cycle from starting. I have run some water through the pump and it drains from the machine. Is there a sensor that may be clogged ?

The issue is water has gotten into the flood basin from the kitchen stoppage in the unit. Pull the unit out and remove the left side cover and check the flood basin for water. Clear or suck it all out and then the flood float should reseat and the unit will work again.
